Volvo diggers operating at recycling centre

Hampshire based L&S Waste Management Ltd has added two new Volvo excavators to its fleet of mobile equipment that take up residency at the company’s Portsmouth recycling centre. The two new machines are a 20-tonne EC200E which was launched globally earlier this year, and a slightly larger EC220E weighing 22 tonnes.

The two new machines fulfil two specific applications at L&S Waste Management’s Portsmouth facility. The 156hp EC200E, equipped with a selector grapple, is in charge of sorting the incoming material which is comprised of general industrial inert waste, skip waste, rubble and demolition waste. The slightly larger EC220E was chosen primarily to load concrete, rubble and hardcore into a primary crusher and also to break larger oversized material with the aid of a hydraulic hammer and a hydraulic pulveriser.
